Kirby McInerney LLP is investigating potential claims against the Board of Directors of Cadence Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (“Cadence” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: CADX) concerning the proposed acquisition of the Company by Mallinckrodt plc (“Mallinckrodt”) (NYSE: MNK). Under the terms of the definitive merger agreement, Cadence stockholders will receive $14.00 in cash for each share of Cadence owned, valuing the transaction at approximately $1.3 billion on a fully diluted basis.

The investigation concerns whether the Cadence Board of Directors violated its fiduciary duties by agreeing to the proposed transaction and whether the proposed consideration adequately values Cadence’s common stock.
